Axton VA, October 15, 2017

The weekend started for some on Friday afternoon as Rusty led Ed and Rick on a 135 mile street ride on back roads up to Kibler Valley, then up Squirrel Spur Road to the BR parkway, then back down 58 and 57 and on to Axton. Rick put in about 300 miles as he rode his bike to and from his home in NC. Iron butt.

On Saturday folks came to play and practice and hang out and about 25 stayed around for the cookout. Even the Karl Davis family drove up from Florida for the weekend.

The weather was just about perfect for our second trials in Axton, Va. It had rained earlier in the week which left a couple of sections a little slicker than desired, however. We had 8 sections and 3 loops with 30 riders sighting up for the day.

There were 2 hillside sections and 6 rock sections along the loop. Some of The rock sections proved to be harder than planned due to the moisture remaining in the soil and also the over zealous layout of the trialsmaster. Sorry about that. I will try to correct that for future events. We attempt to make trials fun, satisfying and still a bit challenging, but don’t always hit the mark. Next time.
